Search Tch Forums With Google


Recommended Posts

Here is a simple way to search the TCH forums using the Google Search Engine


Google supports a number of search operators, many of which can be directly accessed using their Advanced Search window. These operators can also be used directly from the search bar.


One of the most useful that I have found is the site operator. This is the operator to use to limit your search to a specific site.


In your Google search bar, enter the following to search TCH forums for the keywords "mail" and "service":


site:totalchoicehosting.com/forums mail service


You'll notice the results all are on totalchoicehosting.com under the forums folder.

I find that this is often a more efficient way for me to search the forum and it doesn't put any load on the forum search. The only drawback with this method is it will not contain the most current posts.


There are other search operators that one can use for more powerful searching, but to searching TCH forums, the above is sufficient.
